  1. Rhonda,

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss, especially so soon after the death of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you. If you need anything or just a friend to lean on, all you have to do is call.


  2. Rhonda,
    I can not believe what I just read in the paper. I have been out of town and just read about your mom, and I had no idea about your dad either. Gosh, I cant imagine how you and Anthony are feeling. Please give me a call. 253-0419 Deb
